Just get used to it!
Just to make a point, I have been very ill the last six months.
I have been stuck with needles, had plastic hardware installed in different parts of my body.
I am not complaining, because it has kept me alive.
Every other day I go down and get hooked to a large machine by two needles.
This hurts, makes me sick and causes me to look drunk.
When I ask the other people, unlucky enough to be having the same treatment, they smile and say, "You will get use to it."
NO, it continues to hurt and make me sick.
The only good thing, it keeps me alive and gives me the enjoyment of writing this little column and that you, little bird, enjoy it.
Just think about it, is our political system in the same spot?
No matter where you turn, lies and deceit?
When you read about a high placed leader saying a completely stupid thing, something which insults your intelligence, you are asked by this person to over look it.
It would seem these folks are going to run our country!
They will have a finger on the trigger of the most powerful weapons in the world.
After you blast a country off the earth, you cannot say "sorry."
Sometimes sorry will not return mistakes to life.
Remember, victory has many fathers, but defeat only one!
(Old moldy "JOHNISM!")
I hold our present presidential wannabes accountable for their friends, acquaintances and other who influenced their lives.
I, too, had many people who passed through my life and left deep tracks.
One of my favorites, taught me well.
I enjoyed talking religion with George, even though he always won!
We walked down the street in a town in New Mexico.
George said God put everything on earth for a good reason, which, as always I came back with supposedly useless things, which as usual he would explain the possible uses.
We came to an alley in which about 10 or so men lay drunk, lying partially on each other clinging to a sack with what was left of their booze.
"Well", said I, "what purpose did God have for this bunch?" smiling, as usual, George said, "He put them there so you could say, for the love of God I will never go there!!"
I am going to bear the pain, or I will die.
I will walk, crawl or be carried to vote, as I always do. For the best people who are running.
I will never get used to the rotten candidates running for some offices, but like my ol’ friend said, maybe I was put here for my vu, both looking forward and the occasional look back to see who is gaining on me!
I hope you don’t like politics as usual.
When bad politics hurts DON’T JUST GET USED TO IT!!! This is JOHN’S VU!!
